Anthology of Moravian Folk Music 1, 2, 3 Hornacko, Dolnacko

Text: Czech, English. Released: 2011, compilation. Indies Records MAM 486-2 (Hornacko), 487-2 (Dolnacko).

Indies Records has taken another significant step in reflecting folk music in Moravia by releasing a four-album compilation aiming to present the forms and transformation of folk music-making in the early 21st century in large and small regions of Moravia. The project has an exquisite form (package, booklet and overall range), as well as content, since it includes recordings made by the finest contemporary folk ensembles and singers in Moravia. The music has been compiled from original discs, with the main selection criterion being the repertoire structure. According to the label, preference was given to natives without formal musical training who learned how to play their instruments and sing in local folk bands. Hence, the listener can better understand the continuity of the tradition of the 20th and even 19th centuries. The first album, dedicated to Hornacko (a small region in south-east Moravia), features the cimbalom bands Hornacka cimbalov muzika Mrtina Hrbace, Hornacka muzika Mirka Minkse, the fabulous Hornacka cimbalova muzika Petra Micky from Hruba Vrbka ad Hornacka cimbalova muzika Petra Galecky from Lipov, Hornacka imbalova musica folkloria. Every connoisseur will savour listening to Martin Hrbac, dusa Holy ad his brother Lubos, Frntisek Okenka, the faulless Marti Prachar, Anna Komakova--and other singers. The Hornacko CD culminates in a real gem, the love song performed by the female ensemble Zensky sborecek from Lipov. Although a small region, when it comes to folklore Hornacko is incredibly compact and buoyant.

The second album is devoted to a part of the dolnacko regio (Uhersky Brod, Strai, Kopanice, Uherske Hradiste, Veseli) whih shows greater interpretational sope.
